Abstract
Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) have demonstrated themselves as a commercially viable technology. Recent technology developments have lead to a new class of commercial VCSELs designed for high power operation. Phase I feasibility testing has verified that these devices are favorable candidates for high power military applications. In this Project, Aerius Photonics will develop high power density 1-D and 2-D continuous wave operation VCSEL arrays for applications in pumping solid state lasers. In addition, Aerius will develop a prototype multi-beam profilometer transmitter module for use in target ranging and detection applications.
